Out of body experience

IN YOUR RED HEART, THERE IS A TRUE MAN OF NO FIXED POSITION, WHO
COMES IN AND GOES OUT THROUGH YOUR FOREHEAD.
That place in the forehead is called in yoga the third eye.
I URGE THOSE WHO HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED THIS, TO TRY TO SEE IT.

Rinzai is saying it is a tremendously significant experience, because then no argument is
needed for you to be convinced that you are not this body — that you are astral, invisible.
Within this body is hiding another body; behind this heart is beating another heart, which medical science may one day discover.

The mystics have always insisted it is there. It is in your hands if you want to experiment.
Just meditating, feel your body lying there. Feel that from your forehead your spirit is
moving up, hovering in the air; but don’t go too far. And always remember the forehead, the third eye, is the door through which you go out and come back in. This experience creates a conviction. Then it is no more faith. Then you know that you are immortal, that this body is just a bag, a cage.

Mysterious candle

Just close your doors, make the room dark and light a small candle. Sit near the candle with a very loving attitude — rather, with a prayerful attitude. Just pray to the candle, “Reveal yourself to me.” Take a bath, throw cold water on your eyes, then sit in a very prayerful mood before the candle. Look at it and forget everything else. Just look at the small candle — the flame and the candle. Go on looking at it. After five minutes you will feel that many things are changing in the candle. They are not changing in the candle, remember; your eyes are changing.

With a loving attitude, with the whole world closed out, with total concentration, with a feeling heart, just go on looking at the candle and the flame. Then you will discover new colors around the flame, new shades which you were never aware were there. They are there; the whole rainbow is there. Wherever light is, the rainbow is there because light is all color. You need a subtle sensitivity. Just feel it and go on looking at it. Even if tears start flowing, go on looking at it. Those tears will help your eyes to be more fresh.

Sometimes you may feel that the flame, the candle, has become mysterious. It is not the ordinary candle you brought with you; it has taken on a new glamor, a subtle divineness has come into it. Go on doing this. You can also do this with many other things…

The Guillotine Meditation

ONE of the most beautiful tantra meditations: walk and think that the head is no more there, just the body.

Sit and think that the head is no more there, just the body.

Continuously remember that the head is not there.

Visualize yourself without the head. Have a picture of yourself enlarged without the head; look at it. Let your mirror be lowered in the bathroom so when you see, you cannot see your head, just the body.

A few days of remembrance and you will feel such weightlessness happening to you, such tremendous silence, because it is the head that is the problem. If you can conceive of yourself as headless – and that can be conceived, there is no trouble in it – then more and more you will be centered in the heart.

Just this very moment you can visualize yourself headless. Then you will understand what I am saying immediately.
